Repingtum is a name whose history on English soil dates back to the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066. The Repingtum family lived in Derbyshire, at Repton, from whence they adapted their name.

Repingtum Early Origins



The surname Repingtum was first found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of the Leache. The first on record was Simon of Repington, about 1080 A.D., probably a junior son of a Norman noble of Lincolnshire. His son and heir, Ralph Repington was living at the Manor of Leache in 1104. He was succeeded by Roger Repington of the same place, and succeeded by Sir Richard Repington who was Lord of the Manor of Faukingham, Danderbie and Thorpe in the Willowes. He was living in 1173. Sir Richard was slain in a joust at Woodstock held before the King in 1178.

Repingtum Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Repington, Reppington, Repinton, Reppinton, Reppingtone and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Repingtum or a variant listed above: Fran Reppington, who settled in Virginia in 1666; as well as John Reppinton who landed in North America in 1710.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Virtus propter se
Motto Translation: Virtue for its own sake.
